Pilots are the winged-squirrels of the human kingdom, vaulting effortlessly from tree to tree in search of a good landing spot. Learn the secrets of aviation with today’s Groupon: for $350, you get two days of ground-school instruction at Cardinal Wings Aviation (a $720 value), which prepares students for the written pilot exam. Upon successful completion of the exam (not administered by Cardinal Wings; test fee is $150 and not covered by this Groupon), you’ll also receive a complimentary 15-minute sightseeing flight (a $35 value).

With more than eight years and 3,500 hours of professional flight education, Cardinal’s FAA-certified instructors have trained hoards of aspiring aviators and seasoned pilots. This intensive 16-hour program prepares eager aeronauts for the standard written licensure exam in a single weekend. Knowledgeable navigators lead a disciplined syllabus, covering basic aerodynamics, flight instrumentation, aircraft systems, and how to ignore the piercing cries of grown men fighting over armrest space. The course, supplying all the necessary books and materials, also schools students in airport regulations and procedures, weather, navigation, and other critical areas of study.

After completing the class, aerialist hotshots must sign-up for the written pilot exam (not administered by Cardinal). Groupon grads who pass successfully can return to Cardinal for a complimentary 15-minute sightseeing voyage onboard one of its sleek, well-maintained advanced aircrafts, such as the Cirrus SR-20 G2 or flying doghouse.

Cardinal Wings Aviation

The seasoned sky jockeys at Cardinal Wings Aviation arm students with the knowledge and skills they need to navigate the wild blue yonder. Calling upon thousands of professional hours and experience flying in all weather situations, these instructors command a fleet of metal birds that includes a single-engine Cessna and a Cirrus aircraft with a glass cockpit. Flights take off from Bowman Field and once in the air, students can work toward their pilot certification, gleaning hours for their logbooks as well as autographs of famous clouds.
